Day 8:Baintha Rest day on baintha keep enjoy with having rest. overnight at Camp.
Day 9:Biantha to Marphogoro (4,400 m 14,430 ft) Camp, trek. Six to eight hours of walking. Getting on to the glacier is tricky. Once on it, the walk is pretty straight forward on the white glacier. However, we are careful to avoid crevasses here. The greenery of Biantha campsite is only a memory now. We are in the dramatic and awesome expanse of the Biafo with its jagged pinnacles. The Ogre (7,813 m.) towers high above us on our right. There is only snow and rock now. Overnight in Camp Marphogoro
Day 10:Marphogoro to Snow Lake (4,800 m 15,750 ft) .
Camp, trek. The trek takes about 6 to 7 hours over ice and snow. Once again we are careful to avoid crevasses along the way. Snow Lake is a magical place. Be sure to get out of the tent to experience the stars in the night. It is an unforgettable experience. Overnight in Camp Snow Lake
Day 11 :Snow Lake (4,800 m 15,750 ft)
Camp, rest day. We stay at Snow Lake one more day to acclimatize and explore this unique area of the Earth. Be careful of crevasses. Overnight in Camp Snow Lake.
Day: 12 Snow Lake to Hispar La (5,151 m 16,895 ft).Camp, trek. A 6 to 7 hour walk on slopes of about 30 degrees take us to the top of the pass. Once again, we are careful to avoid crevasses. Even though the climb is on gentle slopes, we find it difficult due to the rarefied air. When on top we see a panorama described by an early explorer: “Beyond all comparison the finest view of mountains it has been my lot to behold.” On one side the Biafo lies and on the other side we look towards the Hispar Glacier and the peaks above Hunza valley. The view of sunrise from the pass is another sight to behold. Overnight in Camp Hispar La.
Day 13: Hispar La Kani Basa (4,500 m 14,760 ft) Camp, trek. This is a long day’s walk and can take more than 8 hours. We want to make sure that we leave the pass early before the snow becomes soft. On the way down, once again, we are careful to avoid crevasses. We will have to cross the Kani Basa Glacier before we can camp on a green campsite, which is a welcome sight and site after being on snow for the last few days. On the way we can see the famous Kanjut Sar (7,760 m.) towering high above the Kani Basa Glacier. Overnight in Camp Kani Basa
Day 14: Kani Basa (4,500 m 14,760 ft)Camp, rest. A well needed day to relax after a tough walk through Hispar La and snow. Overnight in Camp Kani Basa.
Day 15: Kani Basa to Jutmal (4,200 m 13,780 ft) Camp, trek. This will take about 7 hours and on the way we will cross the Jutmal Glacier. It is tricky here as the route through the glacier is like a maze with high ice walls. After crossing it, another hurdle that we face is the climb up on a loose Hispar Glacier. Some streams have to be crossed on the way. Overnight in Camp Jutmal.
Day 16: Jutmal to Bitanmal (3,600 m 11,800 ft)TCamp, trek. This section takes about 8 hours. On the way Pumory Glacier is crossed and also a stream. The crossing of Pumory is not that difficult as the Jutmal. However, once again, we have to descend on to the ablation valley and once again we have to climb the cliffs on our right to get to the campsite. This is an exhaustive process. Overnight in Camp Bitanmal.
Day 17: Bitanmal to Hispar Village (3,400 m 11,150 ft)Camp, trek. Another short day of about 4 hours. Some streams have to be crossed on the way, but the walking is relatively gentle. A bridge over the Hispar stream has to be crossed and then a climb on a good path brings us into the village proper. It is strange to see habitation as the villagers gather around us. Overnight in Camp Hispar Village.
Day 18: Hispar Village To Karimabad.After breakfast descend in jeep along a bumpy road for about 2 hours until we reach the Karakoram Highway (KKH). We then turn north and drive along this great road for a while until we come to the town of Karimabad on Karakoram Highway.
